Elevator Pitch

SkyDust 3D

SkyDust 3D is a revolutionary spatial synthesizer, which integrates a 3D sound engine with the synth mechanism, allowing musicians to create fantastic spatial music.

Product Description

SkyDust 3D

SkyDust 3D is a 3D synthesizer, a virtual instrument that provides full support for 3D audio – you play a note and get instant spatial sound. By combining the powerful Sound Particles 3D engine with a polyphonic synthesizer, SkyDust 3D enables musicians and producers to create truly innovative and groundbreaking audio compositions. It includes a range of advanced features that empower precise control over 3D sounds, allowing the user to use MIDI/EG/LFO/Sequencer to control 3D panning. Our synthesizer also features an intuitive and easy-to-use interface that makes it accessible to musicians of all levels, and unique presets that explore the concept of spatialization. With SkyDust 3D, spatial audio is no longer just a technical tool but it can be harnessed as a creative tool for music production.

How It's Innovative

SkyDust 3D has 8 oscillators per voice, with each oscillator with a 3D position in space (e.g., you play 10 notes and you will get 80 “objects”/sound sources playing in a 3D space). By integrating the 3D engine with the synth, multiple things are possible: • Using MIDI information to control space (e.g., using Aftertouch to control the elevation of sounds). • Using LFOs to control sound position (e.g., using a noise LFO to control the azimuth of oscillator 3, making its sound jump around). • Using EGs to control sound position (e.g., using an ADSR to make a note starts at the back, attacks to the center, and releases above the head). • Using a Sequencer with specific panning for each step, allowing you to easily create 3D arpeggios. In terms of output formats, SkyDust 3D supports more than 30 formats, including, stereo, binaural (3D sound over headphones), 5.1, 7.1, Dolby Atmos (7.1.2, 9.1.6, etc.), 22.2, Ambisonics (up to 6th order). Besides the spatial features, SkyDust 3D includes multiple innovations, including a poly keyboard sequencer, random preset generator, sub-presets, custom panner editor, ability to force a sequencer scale (getting the right major/minor arpeggios depending on the note of the scale), and an extra powerful matrix associated with a curve editor. Finally, our user-friendly interface sets SkyDust 3D apart from the competition. We have designed the product with ease-of-use in mind, ensuring that even novice users can quickly and easily create complex soundscapes with our synthesizer. Overall, SkyDust 3D represents a major leap forward in MIDI-based music production, offering a range of unique features and a user-friendly interface that make it a powerful tool for musicians and producers alike.

Most Inspiring Use Cases

Playing a note and getting instant immersive spatial sound. From 3D arpeggios to immersive pads, SkyDust 3D gives you a music experience that you could never obtain in stereo synthesizers. With SkyDust 3D, musicians and producers can explore new dimensions of music, allowing more nuanced and immersive soundscapes in their compositions, which opens up a world of possibilities for spatial music production that was previously unattainable.

Expansion Plans

We plan to further enhance our already powerful synth by incorporating new and innovative features, such as new synthesis methods (sampling, granular, wavetable) and new synthesis features (additional EGs, more wave modifiers, etc.). Exclusive presets of renowned artists will also be added. We also plan to expand our user base by offering training and support programs to help users get the most out of our product. This includes providing online tutorials, webinars, and other educational resources to help users master 3D audio production. Sound Particles will celebrate unique partnerships as well, with top-level musical hardware producers and influencers of the Music Industry.


SkyDust 3D was designed for music producers, composers, keyboardists, DJs, and all professionals working with music, whether they are working in a live performance or producing an album in the studio. SkyDust 3D is available in two versions: SkyDust Stereo for stereo and binaural formats for 299$, and SkyDust 3D for all output formats for $399. It is available on our website as well as through multiple renowned resellers.
